Morello’s next mural to debut
The Tippecanoe Arts Federation (TAF) and Wabash Heartland Innovation Network (WHIN) are proud to announce the start of a new mural in Benton County, Indiana. The mural is part of the WHIN Walls project, which is a program developed and facilitated by TAF to bring public artworks to each county of the WHIN footprint (Benton, Carroll, Clinton, Cass, Fountain, Montgomery, Pulaski, Tippecanoe, Warren, and White). Artist Jenna Morello, who recently completed a mural in Montgomery County, will be in Benton County October 20th through October 27th.
Jenna Morello is a muralist from Brooklyn, New York whose work can be found all over the country. Her vibrant, unique designs have resulted in many different commissions, including a floor of 4 World Trade Center, a component of the rebuilt World Trade Center Complex in New York. In 2015, Jenna appeared on “Street Art Throwdown,” a reality-competition series on the Oxygen Network. You can learn more about Jenna and see her work here.
The community is welcome to stop by anytime to watch her paint at 21 West Oxford Street. Jenna’s typical daily schedule will likely be from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. If you can’t make it, updates will be posted to the Tippecanoe Arts Federation’s Facebook and Instagram pages.
In addition to her daily work, the community is invited to attend the following events to celebrate the new mural and Jenna’s visit:
